‘A Year in the Life,’ Episode 1: Black Lives Matter

Posted Apr 21, 2021

A Year in the Life, filmed throughout the pandemic using COVID-safe protocols, explores how Episcopal schools, ministries, and congregations have adapted to the challenges of the year – from food insecurity to calls for racial justice to worship through restrictions – and more. In this first episode, we visit Trinity Episcopal Church in Ambler, Pa.

In Spring 2020, the United States and the wider world were gripped by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and a movement against systemic racism catalyzed by the murder of George Floyd. Congregations across The Episcopal Church were inspired to action, taking the call to seek and serve Christ in all persons into their communities. Trinity, whose congregation is mostly White, reflected on how they were being called to action even within the confines of the pandemic.

Next time on A Year in the Life, join us for a look at Food for Thought, a ministry of Christ Episcopal Church in Westerly, Rhode Island, with Fr. Sunil Chandy.
